new this morning -- we're learning more about just how mitt romney selected paul ryan as his running mate and the lengths that the two went through to make sure it stayed a secret. friday afternoon, ryan told reporters that he forgot his keys and then went to the back of his house where reporterses couldn't see him. he snuck out of the back door, walked through the woods where his chief of staff picked him up. that's when he eventually traveled to virginia to meet with romney. romney was supposed to make the announcement on friday. but ryan attended a memorial for the sikh temple massacre.
5:48 am
join me in welcoming the next president of the united states -- paul ryan! every now and then, i'm known to make a mistake. i did not make a mistake with this guy. but i can tell you this, he's going to be the next vice president of the united states. >> there you go. as you heard, romney quickly corrected himself. that made for a light hearted moment there for the crowd. >> he made well for his moment. president obama did the same thing introducing vice president joe biden. >> they probably get so used to saying president. because they like to introduce themselves as the next president. now that the republican ticket is set, paul ryan is the gop vice president nominee. >> brian williams takes a look
5:49 am
at this and other nominees throughout history. >> reporter: starting with the unam biggous battle ship backdrop, very little goes unplanned at these events. including romney's appearance and ryan, jacket, no tie. by the way the last team to use a boat backdrop was bush/quayle back in '88. team romney did a brilliant job faking out the media although media reporters staking out ryan's wisconsin home were convinced that he was holed up outside until he showed up in virginia. there will be inevitable professional sniping in the world of political advance teams where crowds are supposed to fill in any gaps and everyone is expected to be enthusiastic and not otherwise occupied. the whole idea of a big vp rollout is still new in the modern era. vice president candidates used to be decided by the party.
5:50 am
fdr barely knew harry truman before they ran together. speaking of fdr, his early vice president gardner was the last house member to named vp. if elected ryan wouldn't be the youngest of ever vp. but the first from wisconsin and the first named paul. on social media, the talk was about the hair of both gop candidates. as laura ingraham put it on twitter, romney/ryan had the best hair since kerry/edwards. >> that's funny. they both have these gorgeous families. it's a good-looking ticket. >> all right, that was brian williams with that story there. all right, check this out. always fascinating to see, but probably a pain to deal with, that huge dust storm blew across
5:51 am
phoenix this morning. along with wind gusts up to 40 miles per hour for this mess. can you imagine? >> i'm trying to recall my meteorology 101 and i think they call those things haboobs. so, don't ask me any more questions. >> can we ask you about today's weather. >> absolutely you can. any requests? >> cool, no humidity. no more rain. >> okay, i think we'll get it all in. not the lowest humidity, ever, but for august, tolerable. we're off and running to a nice start. it's always better to have you with us. let's get started. we'll look around out there. the sun will be coming up very soon and our weather is going to be improving today. we'll have more sunshine and more humidity and a nice little warmup. 73 is where we're at. we can see the washington
5:52 am
monument out there keeping us company. humidity is 68%. the best pictures. winds are north. numbers are coming in. winchester, look at that. 59. love that. ooh 66 culpepper. 72s out on the eastern shore and across southern maryland. you guys got soaked yesterday with some heavy rain. you need it and we all need it. around the beltway in d.c. last night, we had those super soakers but they kept on moving. up to 70s toward fredrik. martinsburg you're working on 84. 82 in cumberland. heading up towards aberdeen, 87 this afternoon and partly sunny.
5:53 am
it's off to the east and the beach today where we have a chance of showers into the afternoon. not the washout that we had yesterday. definitely not a rain-free day. monday and tuesday are looking good if you're taking off this week for ocean city. not so bad out there. there's the soaking rain from yesterday. if we can get these every other day or so, we would start to make a dent in the huge rainfall deficit that we have. again, it's the coastal areas that see the best chance. the next rainmaker is late tuesday, perhaps wednesday morning, between now and then, just some drying weather with lower humidity. this stationary front will slide to the southeast, keeping the showers away from us and then incoming sunshine, your morning forecast at 7:00, my pick of the week is monday and these showers
5:54 am
coming in here tuesday, by the p.m. commute. all righty, out the door we go, in writing, we're becoming sunny today. by late morning. sun set tonight is 8:06. planning ahead now, when do we hit 90 again? by monday. 93 by tuesday with those afternoon showers and storms. a few leftover wednesday morning. we're dry again on thursday. not a bad end of the week until next week. we have showers lining up for next saturday, guys. that's the scoop. enjoy the next two days. good car-washing days are you saying that someone wants to rub your belly. >> no, a little bulldogs, if you go to one of our twitter pictures. >> i guess we're all rubbing mine, too. for good luck.
5:55 am
all right, the nationals continue to roll in the month of august. >> they're going to face off on kansas city. highlights in this sports minute. good morning, your sports minute starts with the gnnats taking diamondbacks in arizona. nats came roaring back with five-run fifth inning. washington wins this one 6-5. soccer now, the united visiting sporting kc, 23rd minute, kc up 1-0. nick daley looking good in the box and puts it away. dc united would lose this one. they're 3-7-1 on the road. pga championship. south carolina. rory mcilroy making a run at this one.
